That's Scott, that's helpful.  For a SP to be affected by this curl bug, 
I would normally see that SP making queries to the AttributeService URL 
configured in my IdP metadata, correct?

Conversely, if I don't see the SP making these queries to 
AttributeService, then I can assume attributes are being pushed anyway 
and it's not the curl bug, correct?
